Rules and Regulations in respect of the Borough Cemeteries

Floral Tributes

  1. As soon as practicable after the funeral, the Council will turf or seed the whole of the grave space. Any floral tributes will be temporarily moved to allow turfing, and then replaced following completion of the work.
  2. Where floral tributes are left immediately after a funeral, and placed outside the allowable Personalisation Area, they will be left on the grave until spent, and then removed.
  3. Thereafter, only the Personalisation Area should be used for flowers. Vases and flower holders made from glass, porcelain or fragile materials are not permitted.
  4. The Council recognises that on significant dates such as anniversaries and religious festivals, floral tributes may need to be placed outside the Personalisation Area, and will exercise a degree of consideration and flexibility on such occasions.
